I am fortunate enough to have been dining at Pigalle since they opened. My family and I typically dine here 2 or 3 times a week when we are in Johannesburg. I guess that we are a little fanatical about how good Pigalle is! Every single time, the entire team manages to exceed our expectations with regards to the food,... More

This has become our annual spot for year end lunch with my colleagues. They have some of the best seafood and steaks, comes with the price tag though. Service can be very slow as they seem to get very busy during the December period. Pigalle Sandton makes for a great spot to wine and dine your better half or family... More

This was a great surprise. We had been told food was good but had no idea how good. They served a small cup of coconut, ginger, butternut squash soup first that was absolutely incredible. I had oysters that were cultivated and they were ok but not great. My wife's Ceasars salad was the same. Yet when the lobster Thermador came... More

I was seeking for a great restaurant for a special occasion and Pigalle Sandton did not disappoint. Food was perfectly done. For dessert a must try is the Ice cream nut cake - to die for!!

My wife and I had the shellfish platter for 2 and it was exquisite. Ask for the hot sauce, it's a real kicker. We sat on the tables with the Maude street view and had a lovely sight of Sandton l. Lovely atmosphere, even better cuisine.

Thank Khaya M
